Cambodia PM meets Myanmar junta chief as visit sparks protests

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen met Myanmar’s military ruler Min Aung Hlaing on Friday amid criticism of the first visit by a head of government since the army seized power from an elected government last year.

Hun Sen was greeted by an honour guard and red carpet when he arrived on Friday, just as protests by coup opponents broke out in other parts of the country over fears his trip will provide more legitimacy to the ruling junta.

Myanmar state television later showed images of the two leaders bumping elbows and sitting down for talks in gilded chairs.
